According to the Orange County Register, four drivers were stopped and cited for driving on a suspended license immediately after having their driver’s license suspended or revoked. The Costa Mesa Police Department staked out courtrooms at the Harbor Justice Center in Newport Beach, California. They followed 16 DUI offenders who had just had their license suspended or revoked. Four out of the 16 ignored the judge’s order to cease from driving. The drivers were immediately stopped and cited for driving on a suspended/revoked license. Three of the cars were impounded.
Being convicted of a DUI is a serious offense. There is a wide range of punishments for a conviction of a DUI. You can be sentenced to time in county jail as well as lose your driving privilege. It is very clear that law enforcement agencies are devoting a tremendous amount of time to arresting drivers for drunk driving. It is considered a serious enough problem by the Costa Mesa Police Department to use the resources of several police officers to stake out DUI offenders at the courthouse.
